'This is the story of Rudolph, his contemporaries, and the second generation of Jordaches. Tom's son, Wesley, haunted by his father's murder, begins a strange and deeply personal quest. Billy Abbott, Gretchen's son, becomes involved with a girl who leads him into unexpected dangers, while Gretchen herself finds new challenges and experiences a remarkable twist to her life. These are some of the elements through which the author has constructed this superb and gripping novel.'
